"Poetry...the deepest abyss
   of infinity." - Sally Ann Roberts
 
I yearn to write
perfect poems,
Meter and rhyme
Rules elude me
 
Writing poetry well, a gift?
Or is it learned?
Only you can decide

Author Notes
To get technical, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines poetry as:


1. a: metrical writing : verse
b: the productions of a poet : poems

2. writing that formulates a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience in language
chosen and arranged to create a specific emotional response through meaning, sound,
and rhythm

3. a: something likened to poetry especially in beauty of expression
b: poetic quality or aspect



The Sapphonic Triad.

This form is an invention of our own Cliverde (Carol) and named by Pantygynt (Jim).

The form is as follows:

A two-line quotation (Free verse but max total of sixteen syllables - must be concise and memorable) followed by a quatrain, four lines each of four syllables finally an 8-4-6 syllable envoi that moves us on somewhere...it should have a "satori" feeling.
You can or may not use rhyme.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
